Happy Imbolc! This is the Celtic celebration that spring is on it's way while winter is phasing out. Shane and I made pancakes and eggs for breakfast, I'll be cleaning up the kitchen and making a Blackberry Cobbler later this morning/afternoon, and for dinner I'm making a Shepherd's pie from a recipe found in the Outlander cookbook using ground lamb Shane's brother gave to him. It's good to see if we like it before filling our freezer full of it I guess haha. We also had a great woods walk last week. Enjoy! Amy
Today the blog is in 3 sections: Hollow Hills Ranch, River Rocks Explorers, and Crystal Caves Wise Woman. Just trying something new! There was more lambs born, a pasture walk, and a few other fun things that happened this week. Enjoy! Amy
Merry Christmas! Happy Yule! Whatever you celebrate, today is the Winter Solstice and the darkest our days will become this winter. Things will start getting lighter as we go forward! Check out what happens to our homestead in winter. Enjoy! Amy
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving or at the least a great few days off! FYI - There's only 5 calendars left for sale! It's been a fairly quiet week (with it being a holiday weekend) but Dorothy the Chicken Coop had some changes. We did make it down to the creek and for a quick trip to Raven's Rest as well. Enjoy!

This week has been truly quieter than any other. Amy has succumbed fully to Morganna's "pestilence" but is slowly getting better, hence no woods walk again this week, or gardening. The weather has warmed back into the 50's, but still mostly rain. Easter Sunday looks like the nicest day of the week!
